Movement abilities (ムーブアビリティ, Mūbu Abiritei?) in Final Fantasy Tactics are learned via Job Points. Each character can equip one movement ability. Movement abilities allow characters to move across battle fields easier than they would usually be able to without them, while some give positive effects simply by moving.
